Talking help a rookie

I have a Sony CDX-R3000 HU and 2 12" Sony XS-L121P5 in a sealed box with about 2 ft.^3 of space. The specs say it can handle 350RMS and 1200 max, is this even close? I want loud deep base, not neccesarily SQ...any suggestions for an amp to run them?

Thanks

Well that sony subwoofers area bit like Extant in a shape sense,
forget the Max power rating, thats not long term listing, and beside, it would drain the life out of your cars electrical system,
Always look at the amplifier fuse! A powerful amplifier will have a big fuse or lots of smaller ones, The sony subs are loud and not very SQ anyway, I will say loud music is bad for your hearing!
So dont go def, I dont know what you want to spend on an amp?
There is a good Xtant 1001, but its expensive for what it is,
There are some big cheap amps, if you just want to move the subs well then an amplifier with lets say a 40 amp fuse will be needed for each woofer.
